I Love Oschene’s Heptagonal Forays

Ahhh the good old heptagon, much maligned-good design.  Phillip Chapman Bell posted two crease patterns recently one a septagon crease pattern for a poof and the other a circle with an inscribed heptagon pattern for a container.  The poof one I havn’t done, but his circle container inspires love of directional crease patterns.  The finished container is strong and aesthetically pleasing.  I’ve been playing way to much today with these tricky sevens.  So if you have the chance go visit

and attempt his marvelous designs.
